Claude Debussy was born into a poor family in France, but his obvious gift at the piano sent him to the Paris Conservatory at age 11. At age 22, he won the Prix de Rome, which financed two years of further musical study in the Italian capital. After the turn of the century, Debussy established himself as the leading figure of French music.

Debussy showed an early affinity for the piano, and he began taking lessons at age seven. By age 10 or 11, he had entered the Paris Conservatory, where his instructors and fellow students recognized his talent but often found his attempts at musical innovation strange.

His music is noted for its sensory component and for not often forming around one key or pitch. Often Debussy's work reflected the activities or turbulence in his own life. In French literary circles, the style of this period was known as symbolism, a movement that directly inspired Debussy both as a composer and as an active cultural participant.

Some of the greatest works of the impressionist artists Renoir and Monet are paintings of a dreamy young woman gazing at reflections in water, water’s depths, or the sky. The idea of reflection is very important, as in impressionism, the reflection is more “real” than the actuality. In art works such as The Boat (1867) by Renoir, the impressionist technique allowed the state of reverie to be boldly explored. It is no coincidence that one of Debussy’s most popular piano works is entitled ‘Rêverie’.

‘Rêverie’ moves slowly and deliberately, and yet with a rhythm that brings to mind water flowing and bubbling in a fountain. As the song continues, the music becomes more wavelike in tone. It then becomes soft and tranquil and moves back and forth in a slight crescendo only to die away again.

Although this piece was originally written for piano, I arranged it for Viola and Concert (Pedal) Harp.
